Legal Nero AG, a company with one of the most fitting names ever (can you imagine a company called Hitler or Stalin 2000 years from now?), has filed an anti-trust lawsuit against the MPEG-LA. The German technology company claims the licensing body has abused its monopoly power, and that is has not honoured agreements made with the US Department of Justice. There's some juicy stuff in here.

They both seem to have a thing for non level playing fields.

At least MS, while not implementing native support for WebM on IE, is not blocking it either.

Apple hasn't blocked it either; hardly Apple's fault if people aren't producing a VP8 plugin for QuickTime.
